In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
As a community, we need to get out of the capitalism, top-down model and mindset. We need to stop micro-managing and start transforming our community organically. I am interested in gleaning and preserving because it is taking advantage of what nature provides freely without supporting corporate supermarkets. It also teaches us how to work together doing projects that are traditionally done in large families or in a rural setting. In the urban zone, we need to come together as a community and spend more time taking responsibility for our own gleaning and preserving and spend less time working indoors in order to buy these items with paper money. During the season, work less, glean and preserve more.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
My contribution is to connect the interests, skills, and resources of the gleaners and preservers in the area so that they may work together and share the joy of the abundance of the harvest surplus and create a variety of preserves that they made barter and trade with the community.
